Berg Gardens (Walpole, New Hampshire)
United States of America -- New Hampshire -- Cheshire County -- Walpole
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, and other information.
General:
The 360-acre plot on a New Hampshire mountain purchased from a forest products company in 1978, with no remaining trees and no more than six inches of topsoil on top of bedrock, is the site of the Berg Gardens. The owners needed a place to put their collection of houses, buildings and architectural features. Elements from diverse building styles including a New England saltbox, a Norman tower, medieval stonework, American wrought iron, a tavern, and a barn were arranged and reconfigured as a mountaintop castle. The gardens were begun in 1986 with the assistance of landscape designer Gordon Hayward and stone mason Dan Snow, and included two trips to England to study the underlying structure of the English naturalistic style. Using stone from the property, nearby locations, and demolition sites and purchased marble, Snow built a hardscape structure of dry-stone walls, terraces, stone stairs and walkways, along with a stone grotto, a ruined silo, and the artificial ruins of a stone barn. A garden folly in the 18th c. chinoiserie style modeled on one at Hidcote in England was created from building plans for a Massachusetts outhouse.
Planting began after dry-stone retaining walls were put in to define garden beds and keep improved soil in place. Plants were chosen that suit the mountaintop environment as well as constructed features, with native seedlings allowed to invade the ruined stone silo. Native plants grow in the barn ruins, including ferns, blackberries, mosses, old roses and small trees. Color is controlled in the perennial garden beds in the terraced areas, ranging from hot to cooler tones. There is a dwarf conifer bed beyond the terraces, and conifers, hemlocks and crab apple trees were planted near the grotto. The "roof" of the grotto is a wild flower meadow with old stone wellheads set above openings in the stonework that let in light. Artifacts have been placed into the garden areas, including four Roman sarcophagi, urns, grinding wheels, a marble sundial, farm implements, and carved capitals topped by stone eagles.
Persons associated with this property are: Jonathan Royce and members of the Royce family (former owners, from 1780); various families (former owners, 19th c.); David & Simonds forest products (former owner, 20th c. until 1978); Gordon Hayward (landscape designer, beginning in 1986); Dan Snow (stone mason, beginning in 1986).

Biographical/Historical note:
The Calumet & Hecla Company, which was formed in about 1866, was one of the largest mining operations in the Lake Superior region of upper Michigan. Over 3 billion pounds of copper were removed from its extensive mines by the time operations ceased in 1939. To facilitate the work in both the mines and smelting plants, the company installed some the largest steam engines ever built. The aggregate amounted to over 55,000 horsepower.

Noted 19th century steam engineer Erasmus Darwin Leavitt was hired to design the series of huge multi-cylinder engines. Each had sufficient power to support several operations at one time. While an engine drove one of the hoists, it might also power pumping, conveying, and air compressing machinery. At the peak of operations there were at least 50 steam engines of all sizes providing power to Calumet & Hecla. Falling copper prices during the 1920s and the economic depression of the 1930s ultimately forced the mines to close. The engines were of no further use and their countless tons of cast iron and steel ended up in the scrap drives of World War II.

The collection came to the Smithsonian in 1960 from Calumet & Hecla, Inc. In the course of a reorganization in 1952 mining had been dropped from the company name as the emphasis was on chemicals, foundry work, and forest products. Its remaining mining activites in other areas of Michigan were phased out during the 1960s and in 1968 C&H merged with Universal Oil Prodcuts, Inc. Late in 1970 UOP scrapped what was left of the C&H physical plant and its remaining assests were auctioned off.

"Relations between the Mbuti and the Bantu and Sudanese farming communities rely on a subtle balance of pillage and bartering forest products against those of the fields. In certain regions, the demand for forest game provided by the Mbuti has been so great that it has been almost totally depleted. These Mbuti will soon be reduced to becoming settlers of a second zone, in the service of peasants or palm and coffee planters. The more settled they have become, the more likely they are to live in the vicinity of villages." [Meurant G., Farris thompson R., 1995: Mbuti Design, Thames and Hudson Inc.]. During his trip to Zaire (now Democratic Republic of Congo), Elisofon visited the Mbuti people at Epulu, South East Ituri Forest region.

Scope and Contents:
"Relations between the Mbuti and the Bantu and Sudanese farming communities rely on a subtle balance of pillage and bartering forest products against those of the fields. In certain regions, the demand for forest game provided by the Mbuti has been so great that it has been almost totally depleted. These Mbuti will soon be reduced to becoming settlers of a second zone, in the service of peasants or palm and coffee planters. The more settled they have become, the more likely they are to live in the vicinity of villages." [Meurant G., Farris thompson R., 1995: Mbuti Design, Thames and Hudson Inc.]. During his trip to Zaire (now Democratic Republic of Congo), Elisofon visited the Mbuti people at Epulu, South East Ituri Forest region. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon was on assignment for National Geographic Film and traveled to Africa from January 19, 1972 to mid April 1972.
